Just a bathrobe...but so much more to me!

This bathrobe is very special to me. It's nothing fancy, it's not expensive. But, it holds many memories for me! I have had this bathrobe since I was a teenager!!! It was made for me by my paternal grandmother. We called her Nonnie. Over the years she made many, many things for everyone in her family. And, she didn't just sew. She knitted, did embroidery, Christmas ornaments of all kinds, ceramics...just to name a few. She was very talented! She lived to be 92 and passed away 10 years ago. I miss her to this day! That is why this bathrobe is so special to me. When I look at it, I think of Nonnie and all the time and effort she put in to everything she made for those she loved.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
